Fund Manager Focused
We serve the specific needs of managers of start up, and emerging investment partnerships. This includes: hedge funds, private equity funds, venture capital funds, etc.
While the complexity of certain funds, or investor demands can require a Big 4 auditor to be use, we have carved out a unique niche in providing a cost-effective alternative for funds from inception up to $1 billion of assets under management. We feel strongly that we have built the best value proposition for this market. Top-quality knowledge with hands-on customer service.
While we do have limits on the number of clients we can accept, we are always looking to meet existing managers or individuals considering setting up a fund. These meetings allow us to determine how our knowledge and experience could help them achieve their goals.
Investors in all types of Pooled Investment Vehicles or Alternative Investments
Due diligence procedures should be a primary concern any time you make an investment. The importance of these procedures is magnified when looking at private investment vehicles or any type of alternative investment.
As an audit and tax firm specializing in the investment partnership industry, we understand the investors need to obtain complete and accurate information upon which to base their decisions. More importantly, we understand our role in helping them obtain that info.
While the auditor is hired by the fund manager, they work to serve the needs of all the users of the financial statements. This includes both existing and prospective investors.
Whether you are considering an investment in a hedge fund, private equity or other type of pooled investment vehicle we encourage you to contact their auditor. Ask the auditor about their experience in the industry, their relationship with the client, as well as any services they have provided, or attestation reports that they have issued.
If you are interested in learning more about investing in a private investment offering, or specific services that we provide, please contact us.
